ADRA Philippines takes a comprehensive approach to emergency management:
- By working with communities to prepare for and mitigate the impact of disasters through a Disaster Risk Reduction program as part of its ongoing development initiatives
- By partnering with local groups to provide immediate assistance when an emergency hits;
- By working with the affected people to help them recover after the crisis has passed through early recovery interventions.
We place great importance on building local capacity and long-term resilience to external shocks. We are committed to meeting international standards of quality, accountability and community participation.
A National Emergency Management Plan facilitates an immediate response to a range of emergencies with funding from ADRA International, the ADRA Asia Regional Office and local church partner.
OUR EMERGENCY RESPONSE
No Man Is An Island
ADRA was tapped by Humanity & Inclusion to be their local partners and be part of the Abra Response Consortium with Tear fund, Plan, PHILDRADS to implement a multi-sectoral response in the province of Abra, that will provide shelter repair kits, earthquake protection kits, hygiene kits, psychological first aid, and cash for shelter, to the families that lost their homes due to the earthquake.
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough
The song lyrics, “Ain’t no mountain high enough, ain’t no river low enough, ain’t no river wide enough to keep me from getting to you,” — reflect how our project team on the ground continues to reach remote communities. Working passionately to help increase the enjoyment of health-related rights by our most marginalized adolescent girls, women, and children.
It’s Ok Not To Be Ok
It is ADRA’s hope that through these PFA trainings, these exhausted minds and burdened spirits have finally been given respite. May the medical frontliners realize that taking care of their personal mental health helps them take care of their patients better. May the teachers learn to see their students with new eyes, catching signs of abuse and neglect early enough to prevent it from happening again. And may each young person discover that, it’s ok to not be ok.
Looking back at Stronger Together Plus
nel, Latter Day Saints Charities, and Local Government Unit of Matanao, Davao del Sur… formed a breakthrough emergency response project called, Stronger Together PLUS – Providing Life Changing and United Support against COVID19.
Using the Build Back Better— an approach to post disaster recovery that reduces vulnerability to future disasters. And with home reconstruction, it will give opportunities for affected families to bounce back as the Build Back Better approach is integrated into their home design and in their homes respectively.
Angel in Disguise
“By being an ADRA Angel, you are saying to your brothers and sisters in need: “I see you. This is a horrible situation. But you can get through it. You are strong and resilient. Here’s some help to get back on your feet.” All around the world, our ADRA Angels extend a helping hand where it is needed most by providing shelter for the displaced, food for the hungry, protection for the vulnerable, clean water for all, and so much more.
